Serebii commented on Guide: Building the Perfect Team in Pokémon X...:

@Jahir Glad you've liked the articles.

This one was actually the hardest I've had to write because it's so subjective, so I made sure to stay away from telling people what to use. I too hate telling people what to use. Always feel teams should represent the person and their ideas, but I cover that on my site because it's expected.

@AlexSora89 It's a quote that has always resonated with me for Pokémon training :)

Serebii commented on Pokémon Moviegoers in Japan Can Receive Dianc...:

@Morgan19 The global aspect was only intended for the release of the games.

As I explained, the other events haven't made it over because they would lose their context in doing so. The Happy Hour Inkay, for example, was for the opening of the Pokémon Center in Tokyo Bay, for which Inkay is a mascot. The newly announced Mega Evolution events are to tie in with a tournament being held in Pokémon Centers. These things would lose context if brought over and be completely pointless.

There's also the aspect that if more places in the west were willing to hold events, then there would be more events.

@Morgan19 The games were global release. They made no mention or promise of events being global release.

With events, context is key and 99% of the Japanese events would lose their context if brought over to the west. The Diancie event does have context, the movie, but the movie won't be out here until Autumn and as such, that's when the event will be.

@Fandabidozi It's very unlikely these will be WiFi.

If Darkrai is to come, they'll run the poll for it again. (Japan ran a poll to choose between Jirachi, Manaphy, Darkrai and Victini. Darkrai won and is being distributed)
Diancie will come, but will be an in-store event.

@Prof_Clayton Not quite

1. We know the Shiny Charm does have an effect. There has been extensive testing on the subject and it appears to be in the region of 1 in 500 or so. We're not sure why the English text for the item lists wild Pokémon only. The Japanese and other languages have it the same as in Black 2 & White 2
2. Since we can't extract from the game, we don't have that particular value. The way the "hackers" got the original change in shiny rate was due to intercepting of trade data, not through hacking the game itself.
